i was very drunk last night and I started fooling around with a boy who doesn’t have the HSV2 virus...
We “dry” humped and I mean he had a Condom on and my vaginal lips are quit large so my vagina wasn’t too exposed.. and then I remember him inserting his penis in, but only once and I said “no” so he stopped but then we continued to fool around..
i just want to know what are the chances of him contacting HSV2 if there was a condom on and I didn’t have any Out Breaks etc....
Help me SOS
After recently getting the silent treatment after disclosing to a potential new partner, again, I did a lot of thinking and have come up with an idea to create a way to disclose, educate, and hopefully help break the stigma of ghsv1. I would LOVE some input and suggestions on this project.
This wouldn't necessarily be a way out of the talk, but more of an aid. We forget things or don't have all the information or maybe the person wants more information. That's what this is for.
I am a web developer. I want to create an engaging and informative site that can be used to help people disclose and/or help inform new partners. Obviously, this has to be done in a way that is not overwhelming to the user and gives them information from reputable sources.
There's a bonus in doing this. I can track where people are leaving the website, how many pages they view, and other statistics about how people are using it. This would help us gain better insight into how people view this topic as well as how the website performs. And I would be more than happy to share the data excluding any personal data that may be collected.
So, my question is: Do you feel like this would be beneficial to you? Would you use it? And what would you like to see/say about dating and ghsv1?
Any thoughts any suggestions are welcome. Please leave a message even if you think it's a waste or time or stupid.
Some background before I explain- I have not been formally diagnosed with herpes but I do get cold sores. It's been at least 2 years since my last one and since my life is very fast paced it's always the last thing on my mind. So when I got into my current relationship I had totally forgotten that I actually get them. My current issue is that I didn't realize I was getting a cold sore because I recently changed acne treatments and disregarded the tingling sensation as a reaction. I gave my boyfriend oral sex and that night after work saw what has now become a sore. I was up till midnight looking up all the research I could and type 1 can effect genitalia. So long story short I probably gave it to him and I feel like crap to the point where I think he should breakup with me. And he thought it was curable(he grew up in a bubble) which makes me feel even worse. I know it's not the worst STD out there which is putting my mind at rest a tiny bit but I still feel like a terrible person and a walking plague sack.
I found this place today and since I don't know anyone with this stupid disease, thought it could be helpful.
Since I got herpes, I feel like I'm doomed. I know, that sounds overly dramatic, but I guess it's cause I'm single and I don't see how any guy would ever want to be together with me ever...
The only person who knows about this, is my best friend and she acted in the sweetest way and never made me doubt that she accepts me. But I don't know if she can understand how terrible it feels to be in this position :-(
Maybe some of you could tell me about how you cope, being single and having dates. I did have some dates after getting the diagnosis, but I'm afraid to have to tell everything one day and that the guy will be disgusted and I'll die of shame and than I'll alone one day... I tried to find a local support group, but here in Germany there don't seem to exist any for herpes.
Would be happy to hear about your experiences :-)
P.S. Sorry for bad grammar or spelling, this is not my mother tongue :-P
Has anyone had a better experience with Valcyclrovir rather than Acyclovir?? Have been wondering which seems to suppress the virus more effectively and have been thinking about switching to Valcyclrovir as I’ve read that it combats the virus better since it had a better bioavailability? Which seems to work for y’all??
